WhatsApp verification method: Even if you do not have the phone number on which your WhatsApp is registered, you will still be able to log in to the app. For this the company has rolled out a new feature. At present this update is available only to beta users.
Till now you use your phone number to log in to WhatsApp. But soon a new option is also going to be available. The new option will give users the option to log in through e-mail. It is being said that currently it is in beta testing and has been rolled out for some Android users. Once testing is done, it will be launched for all users.
It has been clearly said that this new option should be considered as just another way to log-in. SamMobile has said that some beta users of WhatsApp have got the option to link email with their account. This is given in the settings of the app. It is also mentioned that others will not be able to see your email.
Email address will have to be verified
According to the report, users will have to verify their email address to set up their account. A warning prompt appears if you fail to verify your account. There is also an additional ‘Verify Email’ button to resend the verification email to the added address.
The email address feature will likely serve as a backup for situations where users may face difficulties receiving the verification code over SMS, or when they do not have their registered phone number.
WhatsApp announced last month that it would allow Android users to access their accounts using Passkeys.
Said something else before
In a post on social media platform will allow.
Passkey authentication is an opt-in feature and can replace the SMS-based one-time-password login method with user permission. The authentication method is available for Android users, however, Meta has not clarified anything on the passkey for iOS or Apple devices.
